Who is Escape Kitty?

Let me introduce myself. I am Escape Kitty.

I got my start on Sept 1, 2010 as I was out playing in the yard enjoying the birds and squirrels. Really just minding my own business. Happy. Content. Daydreaming.

When, but in an instant, I caught a movement in the corner of my eye. Since cats are noted for their superior vision, I had to do a double take because I thought my eyesight had failed me. I shut my kitty eyes for a moment and reopened them to disbelief.

A coyote? In MY yard? Could it be? And he's drooling my way? Move move move! Find my mom . Run to safety.

Big mistake! Really big mistake. Now she never lets me outside. Done - left to dream. ahhhhh but Kitty dreams really do come true.

So come follow me! I am off to Escape.

Flying Unicorns Team Up with Once Upon a Sketch

Flying Unicorns is Teaming with Once Upon A Sketch for Oct

Two great teams  joining together this month - Flying Unicorns  and Once Upon a Sketch for a month of fun.

Once upon a Sketch is a monthly sketch challenge with an added twist of including journaling into the project.  The journaling has a monthly theme and can be hidden on the back, tucked behind a tag or in an envelope - such like that.  It is meant to have a reflective element.   

The sketches are created by Nadia Cannizzo and always amazing and inspire me.  

 Journaling Theme: "The women/girls etc in our lives..." 

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journaling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journaling (hidden journaling is fine). Acceptable journaling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journaling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journaling is! 
Here is the link to join  the challenge.

Now to introduce you to the girl in my life - though many of you already know my Escape Kitty.  I adore pets.  I believe they make my house more of a home.  I have cats that are vocal and have different personalities - just as I am sure your pets have interesting personalities.  They know exactly what they want and have no bones about asking - excuse the pun. 

Kitty is very important in our family and she indeed, makes me smile. 

I used the Flying Unicorn Oct kit to complete this sketch which include papers from Magnolia Paper Collection Sea Breeze , Magnolia Once Upon a Time.   I embellished with Prima flowers and wood tiles from DoCraft and corrugated words from Jillybean Soup.   The complete list of supplies is at the end of this post. 

The cool corrugated words were misted with Prima Color Blooms in Cotton Candy and Tea Stain.  I love the texture with Miss Kitty.  It reminds me of her fur.  I also have first hand knowledge that Kitty absolutely adores cardboard boxes.

Flying Unicorns has Pre-order options now for their monthly kits because they sell out super fast.  Never miss a kit. Details found here.

I hope you have some time to join the challenge.
